masterclass blockchain

27 juni 2017, Rotterdam – Transparency, a faster flow of data, faster status updates is what operators in the ports and shipping industry are dreaming of, while sharing data and opening the books for others is one’s greatest fear. Enter blockchain! According to both IT and industry experts, blockchain has huge potential. Blockchain is a revolutionary new way to make transactions transparent using distributed ledger technology. Much of the possibilities are yet to be explored, while there are hardly any use cases at the moment. During this masterclass we’ll present you a sneak preview of what is about to come to the port and shipping industry.
